Plans for Google’s massive new 300m-long headquarters in London have been waved through by Camden Council’s planning permission, paving the way for work to begin on the landmark development. The Heatherwick Studio and BIG-designed £1bn scheme encompasses 80,819 sq m of space and will house 5,000 Googlers once it is complete.

Sitting within Argent’s massive Kings Cross regeneration scheme, the so-called ‘landscraper’ will range from seven to 11 storeys across its length and will boast a three-lane 25m pool and a 200m walking and running track on its roof.

It is envisaged that the new building will combine with Google’s current King’s Cross site and a third planned building in the area to create a dedicated campus for the US internet giant of 7,000 employees in what is viewed as a significant vote of confidence in the capital’s tech sector.
